R.O.B. is a 3DS homebrew that logs the data of the 3DS' accelerometer and gyroscope.

Features

  • Logging of the gyroscope and accelerometer data in CSV format. One can easily import it into a spreadsheet or something similar.
  • Logging will continue when the screen is closed, so one can just drop a 3DS running this in their bag/pocket and see the results.
  • Slightly modified system font example for displaying the values on screen, this means none of the flickering typically present in apps using the console API.

Installation

Copy the .3dsx to the 3ds folder on your SD card.

Run it with the Homebrew Launcher.

User guide

Open the app and it'll do the rest. Logs are stored in CSV format which looks a little something like this:

Entry, Accel X, Y, Z, Gyro Yaw, Pitch, Roll

Where Entry is the iteration of the log, and all other values all self explanatory.

It will also display these values on the screen.

Values are saved in /3ds/data/ROB/Test_X.csv, where X is an incrementing number dependent on how many test files there are before it.

In other words, if you've run the app 4 times and start it a 5th, expect to see your results in Test_5.csv.
